In an era where platforms like Twitter and SoundCloud make superstardom more accessible than ever, the importance of major record labels seemingly erodes with each day. Still, selling records is a big deal, and Birdman‘s Cash Money Records has done a lot of that over the last 20 years. How much? According to the CM head honcho himself, one billion units. You read that right.
In a video uploaded to Instagram yesterday (April 5), Birdman showed off a plaque he received in honor of Cash Money Records reaching worldwide sales of more than one billion units. Baby didn’t name names in the video shared on social media, but did take a not so subtle jab at his critics.
“Big boy shit right here baby. A billion units. I mean to say this, to all you dick-sucking fuck niggas, like, forreal, forreal,” he says in the video. “I don’t give a fuck about selling no records bitch, I accomplished what I never thought I could accomplish. This shit bigger than McDonald’s, bitch.”
